Spring is in the air! I am just waiting to sit outside on our deck and work on the blog. Nothing like waking up to the sound of birds chirping and sunshine. Today I am styling a dress from my closet, a lilac sheath with a silk scarf and peachy heels for some colorful Springtime ensemble.
Boohoo! I love my older version for the blog link up and now I got a notice that I have to join the pack and use the same inlinkz format! If it ain’t broke! So, just so you know…
As many ladies do, it has been some Spring cleaning done in the house, both to the wardrobe and to the different rooms that just need some special cleaning once the sun hits. Such fun has been had that I have been taking out the old toothbrush to the baseboards and assessing just what I am tired of looking at, in terms of older Spring/Summer clothes.
I do this each Season and tend to hold on to some things longer than others when a top or dress has been purposely neglected and not worn for years. It was time to do some: Spring cleaning! Both my hubby and I had gone through the closets, each looking for things to donate to “Goodwill” and in my case, partly, things to sell on Poshmark.
I would joke with my hubby saying which of his 6 shirts was he willing to part with? Or how do guys get dressed? Do they all pick up a shirt and ask their wives ” Does this smell?” making this an item to wear for the day, or yet to salvage another day if the answer is no.
I have gone through a bit of a transition, I love my florals for Spring an Summer, ( see yesterday’s post on Stylish Monday ladies styling for Spring) have found many a gingham, plaid, spicy color or solid that I love as well, and have added some pieces to this upcoming season. It is nice to add some things here and there, adding a bit of excitement and joy to getting dressed again. If you are wondering what I have been craving for Spring, read the post- My Spring Wish List. :-)
I’m a very careful shopper, and I ask ” Do I love it?”: Will it go with many things in my closet?
Today’s look is a favorite, as it encompasses comfort and style, the two things I will not part with. This silky, stretchy sheath, in a lavender shade, is a great layering piece or piece to wear with a Spring jacket, as I have here- my Gap jean jacket, I bought on Poshmark ( thrifting site). Here is a lilac dress I found on Amazon, that would be pretty for Spring. I like these current jean jackets found on The Gap. ( Here, Here)
I love a silk scarf, and this lavender floral silk scarf made a wonderful addition to my closet. This is no longer in stock, but I love this one from Etsy!
I just love the way the sun glistens on my hair in these photos! Thanks, hubby! It was a “good hair day”!
Speaking of my hubby…Next week is my hubby’s 5-0 so I’ll be sharing what we are doing for his special day.
